WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2013
Raeford, N.C. – November 20, 2013 – In the pursuit of Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games glory, the top eventing combinations in North America will head to the Carolina Horse Park in Raeford, N.C. March 20-23, 2014 for the Carolina International CIC and Horse Trial. In its inaugural year, the world class competition hosts both international and national level competition at the CIC1*-3* and Preliminary-Advanced levels.
With more than 250 acres of pristine footing and North Carolina’s best soil the Carolina International will provide a supreme opportunity for North America’s best horse and rider combinations to test their skill over world-renown course designer Hugh Lochore’s thoughtful tracks. In addition to hosting elite competition, the weekend will provide a family friendly environment to be enjoyed by all.
“In our pursuit of Team and Individual medals next year in Normandy, France, it is vital that we have top events in our country to test our skills in elite competition without having to travel overseas. As a resident of the Sandhills of North Carolina, I relish the opportunity to ride in front of a hometown audience; knowing that family, friends, and fans are behind you only inspires you to up your game,” said Pan American Games Gold medalist and FEI World Equestrian Games veteran Will Faudree. “I am very excited for The Carolina International. It will be one of the most important competitions the U.S. hosts next year.”
